    How to prevent a WordPress site from getting hacked?

    My sister's website (business website) is hacked more than 8 times in the past 1 year and I hardly see any reasons for this. It's a very small business company and so has no reasons to be famous enough to be specifically targeted. How can one improve the security of a WordPress website? Give some detailed tips and strategies to prevent future hacking.

    Note: It does rank on well on Google for several keywords.
